Eichbaum Lager ~ 50l Keg
Baden-Württemberg beers are traditionally less strongly hopped and taste a little sweeter than those from other regions.
Eichbaum dates from 1679; a Walloon, Jean du Chène established a brewery with its own tavern, which he named Eichbaum – his surname in German (oak tree in English). It is the oldest brewery in Mannheim, and although it has been at different locations since, its headquarters have always been in the city and it is one of the leading breweries in Baden-Württemberg.
Pale straw colour with average carbonation. A light body provides a medium hop bitterness and slightly more dominant biscuity malt sweetness. There are herbal/grassy notes on an astringent finish.
About the Brand
Eichbaum beers are brewed strictly according to the Reinheitsgebot (purity law) of 1516; the oldest, still valid food law in the world. According to it, only malt, hops, yeast and water may be used to brew beer giving Eichbaum a distinctive quality and taste.
